He really likes Bullet the Blue Sky

The WSJ Washington Wire blog (subs. maybe req'd) has this juicy snippet:

An iPod from Irish rock star Bono and a nearly $5,500 mountain bike from Trek were two of the $17,316 in gifts President Bush accepted last year, according to a financial disclosure form released Monday by the White House.

... Other gifts show Bush’s taste for the outdoors: a $400 pair of binoculars from Vice President Dick Cheney, $1,220 worth of fishing equipment, and a $351 chain saw. Bono’s gifts - the iPod and a book on the Bible - were valued about $440.

No word on whether the iPod was one of these.
